I buy the veggies and fruits we will eat that week, and I buy another weeks worth to freeze for the winter. Adam and I love to have big, fresh salads for dinner, and the kids love mini peppers and radishes as a fresh from the garden side that requires very little prep on my part.

    My kids would have pancakes for breakfast every morning if I had the time to make them! When they have a 2 hour delay for school, I like to start the day off on a sweet note with this homemade pancake recipe. You can double the recipe and freeze the leftovers between sheets of parchment paper for an easy to pop in the microwave breakfast for busy days too.

    I like to top mine with bananas and crushed walnuts. One of my kids goes with liberal butter and syrup, and my other kid loves them plain. Top them however you like. Enjoy them golden brown and warm for the best flavor.

    3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon light brown sugar
    1 1/4 cups milk

    Mix together dry ingredients.

    Mix well.
    Allow to rest for 15 minutes in the fridge.
    Heat a griddle or skillet on medium high heat.
    Butter the cooking surface and spoon pancakes.
    Flip when they stop bubbling and are golden brown.

    I guess breakfast is kind of my thing. I sure make a lot of breakfast for dinner meals! The number of pancake pics on my phone is mind boggling. There is just something about breakfast that I seem to romanticize... maybe because I rarely sit down to eat a hot breakfast? 

    A few weeks ago I had an idea that maybe I could make french toast even yummier by adding a little crunch to my recipe! The results were fun, delicious and a crowd pleaser!

    My entire family liked this version of French Toast. After trying this out I have plans to try dipping french toast into a a variety of flavors of cereal too!

    My french toast recipe is simple.

    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    2 tablespoons sugar
    4 tablespoons butter
    4 eggs
    1/4 cup milk
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    10 slices white bread
    1 cup crushed cocoa puffs


    In a small bowl, combine, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar and set aside briefly.

    In a 10-inch / 12-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Mix together cinnamon mixture, eggs, milk, and vanilla and pour into a shallow container such as a pie pan. Dip bread in egg mixture. Then dip into the crushed cocoa puffs. Fry slices for about 3 minutes  then flip to cook the other side. Serve with syrup or whipped cream!

    Fruttata Banana Pancakes

    My son Roo is on a kick where he will eat nothing but pancakes. Seriously. Nothing but pancakes! So when my pals at Fruttata sent me this recipe I knew we had to try it to bring a little something to the daily pancakes that my son insists on eating.

    I loved that I could add something nutritious to his favorite food and jazz them up a little. He was not thrilled with the idea of bananas being added in, but when he realized I wasn't making a second batch of plain ones he ate them. 

    Fruttata Banana Pancakes

    • 1.5 cups flour
    • 3.5 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

    • cooking spray
    • .36 oz bag of Fruttata Banana crisps freeze dried fruit
    • Sift together flour, baking powder and sugar in a large bowl.
    • Whisk in melted butter, egg, and milk until combined. Let batter rest 5 minutes.
    • Preheat large skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray.
    • Pour batter into skillet, 1/4 cup of batter each pancake.
    • Cook 2-3 minutes.
    •  Flip and add contents of dried fruit bag chopped into smaller desired pieces.
